So, many a Game of Thrones fan has begged for HBO Go, a service that provides show streaming of HBO programs to various platforms. As it stands now though, you have to have a subscription to HBO through your cable provider to make use of the service as it stands however.
During a premier for season three of Game of Thrones, Richard Plepler was asked about their Go service perhaps breaking out of that mold and being offered up as a stand alone service. Despite saying that HBO currently "has the right model", the fact that he added "maybe HGO Go, with our broadband partners, could evolve, " has made everyone run wild with the story that this is in fact happening.
He did knock around the idea that the service could be bundled with broadband service, so that the cable companies wouldn't get cut out of the picture. This does sound like an idea they may be working on, especially considering HBO has already begun offering a streaming only service in Scandinavia, but I wouldn't get your hopes up in time for this season of Game of Thrones. Considering how many different cable companies they would have to work with, it might not even be something we see before season four.
